Why I Am Running for the Board of Education

I am running for the Board of Education because I believe that all students deserve accessible, quality education that emphasizes and values their identities. I believe that South Windsor is on the right path toward inclusivity.

I am looking forward to having the opportunity to continue developing those principles for our town and school system. 

My Experience 

  • Program Leader/Graduate Assistant: Husky Sport, August 2019 – Present
  • Community Activist: South Windsor for Black Lives Matter, June 2020 – Present
  • Co-Founder, Secretary, Chair of Expansion and Events Subcommittee: South Windsor Future Leaders in Politics (FLIP), October 2020 – Present
  • Building Substitute Teacher: Orchard Hill Elementary School January 2021- June 2021
  • Middle School Assistant Softball Coach: Academy of Aerospace and Engineering, February 2019- June 2019
  • Assistant Coach: Diamond Club Softball, August 2017- June 2018

My Vision for South Windsor

I hope we can continue the momentum of diverse hires in our district, and work with the Equity and Inclusion Director to develop comprehensive faculty and staff training.

I would also like to work on making sure our mental and social services are accessible for families who need them during this ongoing pandemic.
